MLB Trivia: Wild Things

MLB strikeout king Nolan Ryan also holds the record for most career wild pitches with 277. The record for most wild pitches in an inning is four and has been achieved by five players, three of whom are still active today. The most recent time a player tossed four wild pitches in an inning was Seattle's R.A. Dickey on August 17, 2008. Can you name the other two active pitchers who threw four wild pitches in an inning? (Hint: One is a former Cub, and the other is currently a Phillie.)
